but in everything commending ourselves as God's servants, in much patience, in troubles, in emergencies, in distresses,

in stripes, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings;

in pureness, in knowledge, in long-suffering, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in love unfeigned,

in the Word of Truth, in the power of God, through the weapons of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,

through glory and dishonor, through evil report and good report; as deceivers and yet true;

as unknown and yet well known; as dying and, behold, we live; as chastened and not killed;

as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing all things.

--2 Corinthians 6:4-10 MKJV

 

Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as beside myself,) I am more! I have been in labors more abundantly, in stripes above measure, in prisons more, in deaths many times.

Five times from the Jews I received forty stripes minus one.

Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked. I have spent a night and a day in the deep.

I have been in travels often; in dangers from waters; in dangers from robbers; in dangers from my race; in dangers from the heathen; in dangers in the city; in dangers in the wilderness; in dangers on the sea; in dangers among false brothers.

I have been in hardship and toil; often in watchings; in hunger and thirst; often in fastings; in cold and nakedness;

besides the things outside conspiring against me daily, the care of all the churches.

--2 Corinthians 11:23-28 MKJV
